  • 5. Get my drift? Spreading apart Who’s on top? Clean your plate! Bound- aries Everything else $200 $200 $200 $200 $200 $200 $400 $400 $400 $400 $400 $400 $600 $600 $600 $600 $600 $600 $800 $800 $800 $800 $800 $800 $1000 $1000 $1000 $1000 $1000 $1000 Round 1 Final Jeopardy Scores
  • 6. $200 The German scientist who suggested the theory of continental drift
  • 7. $200 Who is Alfred Wegener? Scores
  • 8. $400 Name 2 of the 4 pieces of evidence suggesting the continents used to be joined
  • 9. $400 What are…? 1-fossil 2-shape of the continents 3-rock/glacial/salt deposits 4-alignment of mountain ranges Scores
  • 10. $600 The name for the super continent that existed 250 million years ago
  • 11. $600 What is Pangaea? Scores
  • 12. $800 The main reason geologists did not believe him was because his theory was lacking this
  • 13. $800 What is a satisfactory explanation of the force that pushes or pulls the continents? Scores
  • 14. $1000 This was Wegener’s actual profession (was not a geologist!)
  • 15. $1000 What is a meterologist? Scores
  • 16. $200 These underwater formations form the largest mountain chain in the world
  • 17. $200 What are midocean ridges? Scores
  • 18. Daily Double
  • 19. $400 At midocean ridges, lava erupts from the __________ and runs the length of a ridge
  • 20. $400 What is the rift valley? Scores
  • 21. $600 The age of the rocks on the ocean floor get progressively ____________ the further away from the mid-ocean ridge.
  • 22. $600 What is older? Scores
  • 23. $800 The process of the oceanic plates moving away from the midocean ridges is known as this
  • 24. $800 What is sea-floor spreading? Scores
  • 25. $1000 Scientists are able to observe “stripes” in the ocean floor because these minerals freeze in different directions when the polarity of the planet changes.
  • 26. $1000 What is magnetite or iron? Scores
  • 27. $200 The process in which crust plunges back into the Earth is called this
  • 28. $200 What is subduction? Scores
  • 29. $400 Deep, V-shaped canyons that occur at areas of subduction
  • 30. $400 What are trenches? Scores
  • 31. $600 This is why oceanic crust is subducted under continental crust (also why older oceanic crust is subducted under newer crust)
  • 32. $600 What is that it is more dense? Scores
  • 33. $800 As crust is subducted, it melts into magma which may rise and eventually form these
  • 34. $800 What are volcanoes? Scores
  • 35. $1000 This is the deepest trench in the world
  • 36. $1000 What is the Marianas trench? Scores
  • 37. $200 There are these many major lithospheric plates
  • 38. $200 What is 7? Scores
  • 39. $400 This is the largest lithospheric plate
  • 40. $400 What is the Pacific plate? Scores
  • 41. Daily Double
  • 42. $600 This method of heat transfer is the driving force behind the plate movement
  • 43. $600 What are convection currents? Scores
  • 44. $800 The Hawaiian Islands were formed by this
  • 45. $800 What is a hot spot? Scores
  • 46. $1000 This type of activity is found at all plate boundaries
  • 47. $1000 What is earthquake (seismic) activity? Scores
  • 48. $200 This is the type of boundary where midocean ridges form
  • 49. $200 What are divergent boundaries? Scores
  • 50. $400 The type of boundary formed by a lateral fault (plates grinding past each other in a horizontal direction)
  • 51. $400 What is a transform boundary? Scores
  • 52. $600 Los Angeles is found on this plate
  • 53. $600 What is the Pacific plate? Scores
  • 54. $800 This explains why a convection current works
  • 55. $800 What is the deeper hotter mantle material rises (less dense) and then cools, becomes denser, and sinks? This cycle repeats. Scores
  • 56. $1000 These islands are formed when two oceanic plates collide
  • 57. $1000 What are island arcs? Scores
  • 58. $200 Mountains only, no volcanoes, are formed at this type of convergent boundary
  • 59. $200 What is a collision of two continental plates Scores
  • 60. $400 This is the only country that has a divergent boundary running down the middle
  • 61. $400 What is Iceland? Scores
  • 62. $600 This is why there is no subduction at continental-continental collisions
  • 63. $600 What is both plates are of very similar density? Scores
  • 64. $800 The name for the earthquake and volcano zone that encircles the Pacific Ocean
  • 65. $800 What is the Ring of Fire? Scores
  • 66. $1000 This mountain chain is believed to have been formed when the North American plate converged with another continental plate during the formation of Pangaea.
  • 67. $1000 What are the Appalachian Mountains? Scores
  • 68. Final Jeopardy Scores The category is: Ancient Eruptions Final Jeopardy Question
  • 69. Pompei and Herculaneum were devastated by the eruption of this legendary volcano in 79 A.D.
  • 70. What was Mt. Vesuvius? Scores
  • 71. Congratulations... You are the new Jeopardy champion!!!
